As this nightmarish pandemic powers on, I was thinking that the one good thing about COVID has been the eye-opening effect it has had concerning our dependence on foreign nations. The things we need and want in our everyday lives should never be something we receive from outside our own borders. For heaven’s sake, we are known as a nation that can mass produce products, with no one in the world equal to us – that is what won us two World Wars. I think it is time to bring the jobs back. If that means we have to pay an extra $10 for a pair of jeans, then so be it.

I would encourage everyone to look at sites like the American List and start actively seeking out and buying products made in this country. We have been blinded for much too long, and the only way to win this war is to vote with our wallets. Spend our hard-earned dollars on U.S. made products as much as possible.

I have noticed more and more products are saying “Made in Mexico” lately. I think that is better than “Made in China,” but I would much rather read “Made in the U.S.A.”  The MADE IN AMERICA STORE is another great resource. All American Clothing Co. is located in Ohio and is 100% American made. They can even tell you the name of the farmer that raised the cotton that your pair of jeans is made from. 

In short, I think we all know the guilt of purchasing foreign-made products. Why don’t we join together and start changing this nation for the better? This is the U.S.A. and I think we need to unite and start bringing our jobs back. After all, we are the greatest nation that has ever existed. I fear that we may be losing that title at an alarming rate, but I don’t think it’s too late. We just need to wake up and start buying products made in the U.S.A. 


God bless you all, RHM
